I was poking around some forums at 20sb.net and I was displeased. Did you know there are actually adults who are still describing Linkin Park as “amazing” and “groundbreaking” and stuff? This makes me feel a little sick in my belly. Not that I want to provoke a stupid argument about it. And I certainly realise that trying to train cows to speak english is a waste of time. I JUST DON’T GET IT THOUGH. No, I’m not really a music snob, I mean I’m pretty open to everything that isn’t Celine Dion. While I personally prefer Motorhead or The Moldy Peaches to Justin Timberlake, I don’t feel a need to shit on Justin Timberlake fans. But Linkin Park? Amazing? Really?
So. I’ve been looking on the internet for scientific proof that Linkin Park sucks, but I can’t find anything other than a bunch of 15-year-olds arguing on a videogame message board. What made me laugh though, was when I googled the phrase “adults who still listen to linkin park,” there were ZERO results. Then I worried about logistics and grammar. So I tried “adults that still listen to linkin park,” along with “adults that listen to linkin park,” and “adults who listen to linkin park.” Yes, I know that was repetetive and probably annoying to read through, but I wanted to cover all my bases. When done with quotations, I got ZERO results for any of the above searches. When I did all of these searches slightly differently, with the word “adults” replaced with “kids” or “children” or “teenagers” or “mentally handicapped people,” I got thousands of results combined. So. This obviously means something.
Just thinking out loud here, folks. Feel free to comment on why Linkin Park is the raddest band you’ve ever heard. In the meantime, here’s a funny video about the matter at hand:

It has been less than 24 hours since I posted this blog entry. I have already gotten 2 new visitors because they google searched “scientific proof linkin park sucks.” I feel good that I’m clearly not the only one thinking about this. Also, if anyone does find the scientific proof, please come back and let me know.
